The Ferals Podcast

Violence. Substance abuse. Cheating to win. Welcome to Australian kids television in the 90s! Join Monkey Boy, Swinny & Mike for The Ferals Podcast – an in-depth look at the Australian cult-classic children’s TV show The Ferals. Aired between ’94 and ‘95 on the Australian Broadcasting Network (ABC), the show has since fallen into obscurity – and it’s up to us to bring it back out of the mothballs, dammit! Listen in utter amazement as we breakdown the exploits of Rattus P. Rattus, Modigliana, Derrin and Mixy as they plot against their evil landlord Joe King, with the aid of their student friends Robbie and Leonard. Oh, there’s also Keith the Koala. He’s awesome. So prepare yourself for a headfirst, one-way trip into the bizarre, violent – and at times, frankly disturbing world of The Ferals!

6 episodes away from the end of The Ferals, and I have a sneaking suspicion we'll never get to find out the answers to these very important, plot-critical questions:

...Did Derryn ever rebuild peaceful diplomatic relations with the moon-king?

...Will Lenny ever confess to lending his 'home movie' collection to Rattus?

...Was the rock monster actually Bumblebee from Transformers?!?

...Is Joe King's middle name 'Far'?

You've got six episodes, people - time to start wrapping up those loose ends!

Episode S02E09 of The Ferals features the launch of Ferals TV, Robbie learning the sax and Lenny threatening to rub animals together to create electricity, all the while screaming "I'm going to have to science the shit out of this!"

I may have gotten part of that mixed up with Matt Damon. Oh well, still relevant. Science on, Lenny!

Join Monkey Boy, Swinny, and Mike as they delve into the bizarre, violent – and at times, frankly disturbing world of Australian children's TV show, The Ferals!
